Experience Highlights

  • Duration: 8hrs

Today visit Rio de Janeiro's most famous sites of Corcovado Mountain and Sugar Loaf. One of the most visually stunning cities in the world, ascend these viewpoints for spectacular panoramic view. Aboard the Swiss cogwheel train climb from 15m to 670m up through the thick vegetation that is Tijuca National Park. The very top is reached by climbing a flight of stairs reaching the base of the Christ the Redeemer statue. Covered in a mosaic of soapstone, it is one of Rio’s finest Art Nouveau monuments. The views with the surrounding forest spreading below and exceptional views out over Guanabara Bay are spinetingling. Sugar Loaf mountain is reached on a two-stage cable car ride. The first stop is the Morroc da Urca, at approx. 170m, offers views of the nearby Yacht Club and Botafogo Bay. The second stop is the iconic Sugar Loaf and this all-encompassing lookout point is unrivalled.
